The Taulia Leadership Program provides the foundation for a highly effective and successful future leader to grow, learn and flourish in their professional career.
Originally introduced in 2019, the Taulia Leadership Program (TLP) returned in 2020 and saw another four future leaders take part in the year-long, intensive leadership development program. The Taulia Leadership Program is built on the philosophy that by investing in today’s people, you can create tomorrow’s future leaders. Each year, four selected leaders-in-training participate in a series of sessions designed to enable them to learn new leadership skills and strategies, elevate their careers, and give back to their communities.
Participants in the 2021 cohort include:
- Ivelina Linkovska – HR Generalist (Sofia)
- Diyan Filipov – Engineering Manager (Sofia)
- Adam Matas – Senior Manager, Global Program Management (Remote Canada)
- Jacob Fresneda – Associate Director, Sales (New Orleans)
The Taulia Leadership Program provides the foundation for a highly effective and successful future leader to grow, learn and flourish in their professional career. Participants take part in a series of workshops, sessions, and training programs that help them with:
- Career development and growth
- A better understanding of Taulia’s vision, strategy, customers, and solutions
- Leadership training and mentorship opportunities
- Strategy and innovation sessions
- Character development and skill-building
Most years, program participants fly to Taulia’s corporate headquarters in San Francisco, California to attend an executive leadership training program at the University of California’s Berkeley campus, however, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the program was forced to go remote, which proved to be both equally challenging and rewarding.
I was actually paired with our CEO, Cedric Bru and we met biweekly to discuss my goals, professional development, and discuss strategies for leading authentically.
One program participant, Ivelina Linkovska, an HR Generalist in Bulgaria, states, “Although this year’s TLP was remote, I still had the opportunity to connect with senior leaders within the organization and learn from their experiences and hear their stories. I was actually paired with our CEO, Cedric Bru and we met biweekly to discuss my goals, professional development, and discuss strategies for leading authentically. One of my favorite aspects of the program was working on a stretch assignment with others in the program. We worked together to complete a project on enhancing customer acquisition time, which was a great experience and gave me more insight into how our client-facing teams work and what value their work brings to our customers. The TLP program gave me the opportunity to boost my leadership skills, connect with other Taulians and learn about myself and my capabilities. I encourage all Taulians to apply for this program as they won’t regret it. Even remotely, it was such an enriching experience.”
The 2021 Taulia Leadership Program gave Taulians the chance to build their leadership skills and invest in their professional development through a unique mix of online learning, professional networking, and enriching educational experiences. By investing in our employees today, we are helping them to become highly effective and efficient leaders of the future who will help drive our company towards success, innovation, and inclusivity.
